Amra’s questions for me
What is your purpose behind blogging?
Well, I feel more connected with myself when I write.But yes blogging entails sharing the writings,so the sharing part gives me a chance to connect with people who have a similar affection towards writing.And I am glad I did get to connect with a lot of people who love to write,it gives me inspiration and new ideas and also a kind of freedom where I can feel more comfortable in expressing myself.
What is your most popular post,provide link.
My most popular post was a short story I had heard in a spiritual meet.The story was so pleasing I always narrated it to my friends.And when I started blogging,it was one of the first entries I started off with,and it was received quite well.It is titled “Thank God”
What advice will you give to a newbie blogger?
To be very clear about the objective of blogging.Why am I starting a blog? Who am I writing it for? How should I measure whether I am achieving my goals or not?Once clear about these points,one can be very precise about what contents to post and how to carry forward the blog.
What is your favourite book/movie or both?
It is always very difficult for me to answer for a favourite book.(there are so many!) But to name a few I would say
Siddhartha by Herman Hesse : A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle : The Winged Word,which is a collection of classical poetry : Tales of Mystery and Terror by Edgar Allan Poe : Sphere by Michael Crichton : The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons (by Dan Brown)
Movies,I watch very less,but yes I did love Psycho and Rear Window(Alfred Hitchcock) Jaws and The Jurassic Park (Steven Spielberg) Signs, The Village and Unbreakable (M Night Shyamalan)
Place you would like to visit
All the places associated with mystery and adventure- Egypt(The Pyramids),Greece,Italy,France(The illuminati legend,Leornado da Vinci, Galileo),El Dorado,Machu Picchu, Bermuda Triangle,Easter Island, Mexico (Aztec) and probably outer space.
Do you like horror movies,if so which one?
No..not much into movies.
From where do you get inspiration for writing?
And yes,from the books I read.I keep observing things going around me and I like listening to people talk,sometimes some perspectives are so interesting I build some write up on that.And yes I do take long walks alone in silence.Most of my ideas get structured in the course.
Have you ever met with a car accident,what did it teach you?
Never met with one.But I guess it will teach you to drive safely.
What is your biggest dream?
To become a traveller,thinker,writer.
If you could time travel,what would you like to change?
I never thought.I think I would like to time travel but wont want to change anything.Just like to see things happening again,like re reading a lovely novel.
What is the happiest moment in your life?
There are many.In general spending time with my family during holidays, and also while celebrating a success that is earned though challenging my own capabilities,those moments I relish to the fullest.
Thankyou so much Amra for giving me this opportunity to share my thoughts.I am really grateful to you.
